As should be to no one's surprise, word along the grapevine is that the graphic novel adaptation of Stephenie Meyers' vampire soap opera self-insertion lovefest Twilight has managed to sell more copies in a week than most comics do in their lifetime in the US: 66,000 books were pushed. (That leaves Hachette/Yen Press with another 284,000 copies to sell, but I expect that they'll manage it.)

I won't go into great detail here, since we just posted our own Unscripted take on the book, but I will say this much: Twilight is neither as bad as I expected, and at the same time every bit as bad. Hit up the video for more on that. But in the meantime, fear not, those of you with unnecessary levels of Twi-hate in your hearts: it's nowhere near the two million copies that One Piece volume 57 managed to sell in a mere two weeks.

It makes me sad to know that there are at least 66,000 people out there that have such a bad taste in entertainment.

Somewhere, Stephenie Meyer is practicing saying "Exactly as planned" in her best Robert-Pattinson-as-Edward-Cullen-as-Light-Yagami voice.

@cfatalis: I always through the correct response would be to KILL IT WITH FIRE!
 
But then, like Dr. Hibbert, that's how I'd solve all problems of that nature.

I've said this elsewhere, but if selling a few hundred copies of this POS keeps Yen Press running so they can keep giving me Black Butler, Sarasah, and Spice and Wolf...then all hail Twilight.  Gotta look at the silver lining so you don't go bashing your head against a brick wall.

the series is really well thought out, the novels are really well written, but the movie is HORRIBLE.  some things were never ever ever meant to go to the silver screen, and defintely not to be made into a manga -_-. its comepletely devaluing the series.
